Event #28: $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha

Brenes Survives


Preflop betting meant Humberto Brenes had committed most of his stack from the big blind against an opponent on the button when the flop came {8-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{10-Clubs}.

Brenes made his familiar wordless, two-handed gesture to indicate the rest of his chips were now going in, and his opponent called. Brenes showed {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}, while his opponent tabled {9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Spades} for the straight draw.

The turn was the {Q-Spades} and the river the {A-Diamonds}, and Brenes survived. He's now at about 35,000 with half an hour left in Day 1.
